Battle of the WN Foods Hot Sauces

Which WN Foods Hot Sauce Is King?

Today our hot sauces are going head-to-head to see which one will emerge victorious. We’ll judge them on the following categories:

  • Heat
  • Versatility
  • Texture
  • Overall flavor

Let the fight begin!

Sriracha

Our first contender is Sriracha, the delectable Thai hot sauce that has taken the world by storm. How will this old favorite fare in the ring?

  • Heat: Sriracha is hot, but not burn-your-face-off hot. This is part of what makes it so approachable.
  • Versatility: This sauce isn’t just for pho! You can use it basically any way you use ketchup, too.
  • Texture: Smooth, also like ketchup.
  • Overall flavor: It’s hard to beat this harmonious blend of spice, citrus, and garlic!

Gochujang

Next up is Gochujang, a spicy Korean sauce giving Sriracha a run for its money. Could this be the next big hot sauce?

  • Heat: Trust us when we say that Gochujang is sure to bring the heat! It’s a slow burn, but the spice will gradually spread across your tongue, then suddenly you need a gallon of water.
  • Versatility: Though mostly used in Korean recipes, Gochujang can be used in basically all the same ways as Sriracha.
  • Texture: This sauce is also smooth, but heavier and richer than Sriracha.
  • Overall flavor: Gochujang’s flavor is complex, ancient, and deep. The fermented ingredients create a unique flavor experience that we can’t recommend enough!

Chinese Hot Mustard

488198245

Chinese mustard may look gentle, but watch out! Just take one tiny bit and you’ll be sweating. Can this mustard hold up against the other two sauces?

  • Heat: This is a sharp, pungent heat. If you’re looking to make a statement with your spice, Chinese Mustard is the perfect ingredient.
  • Versatility: Chinese Mustard is most often used with pork or as an egg roll dipping sauce, but adventurous souls can use it in any recipe that calls for mustard. Just be sure to have a glass of water on hand.
  • Texture: The texture is thick, but satisfying.
  • Overall flavor: Chinese Mustard is mustard kicked up a hundred notches. Spicy, all-powerful, and all-flavorful!

Sriracha, Gochujang, and Chinese Mustard are all strong hot sauce contenders, but which one is the best? We just can’t decide! Which one is your spicy condiment king? Let us know in the comments!

Dipping Sauces of the World

Every day, people all around the world with all different culinary backgrounds and tastes dip their food in a dipping sauce. Whether they’re dipping a potsticker, a pretzel, or pita bread, they dip them in one of the world’s many delicious dipping sauces. Let’s take a look at a few of these dipping sauces from around the globe!

Queso Fundido

It’s hard to resist a plate of nachos, especially when they come with this ultra-cheesy Queso Fundido from Mexico! It’s made with a variety of cheeses, chorizo, and fresh salsa. We’re getting hungry just thinking of the melty texture of the cheese with the crunch of the nacho chips and the burst of flavor from the chorizo. Try it out!

Baba Ghanouj

Don’t be afraid of the name! Baba Ghanouj is an amazing dipping sauce often served with pita bread as a starter in Middle Eastern cuisine. With tahini, eggplant, and herbs, this sauce is sure to be a flavorful and smooth companion to whatever you choose to dip in it!

Sweet Mustard

We know many of you have tried our Double Hi Chinese Mustard, but have you tried Bavarian Sweet Mustard? It’s more gentle and less pungent than its Chinese counterpart, but still packed full of flavor. Try using it as a dipping sauce for a juicy sausage or a soft baked pretzel!

Chermoula

Coming all the way from the Maghreb region of Africa, Chermoula is a simple but delectable dipping sauce comprised of lemon juice, oils, and herbs. This zesty sauce is often paired with meat dishes like kebabs, so we recommend trying it at your next summer BBQ. We think it will be a hit with your guests!

Ponzu Sauce

Here at WN Foods, we talk about Ponzu Sauce a lot, but it’s because we love it so much! We just can’t get tired of that savory soy sauce mixed with the tangy bit of yuzu. That combination creates a truly unique flavor for shabu shabu and gyoza. Yum!
